grams for its students. PLATO resources are intended to motivate students to develop an understanding of other countries, regions, languages, and cultures through direct personal experience and enhanced international understanding. In order to implement this project, the Center has begun collaboration with an initial group of project partners, including: • American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) • American Council on International Intercultural Education (ACIIE) • California Colleges for International Education (CCIE) • California State University System: International Program Office (CSU) • Cheyney University of Pennsylvania (CUP) • Consortium for North American Higher Education Cooperation (CONAHEC) • Council for Opportunity in Education (TRIO Programs) • Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) • Institute for International Public Policy (United Negro College Fund Special Programs Corporation) • SAFETI (Safety Abroad First – Education Travel Information) Consortium • Southern California Consortium for International Studies (SOCCIS) • University of Arizona • University of California System: Education Abroad Programs Office (UC) • UCLA Center for International Development Education • University of Hawaii System: Office of International Affairs (UH) Project partners provide feedback for all aspects of project design and implementation. Involvement in the project is not restricted to these original partners. Similar to the Center’s SAFETI Clearinghouse consortium of institutions that share materials for study abroad health and safety, the PLATO Project will formalize a2national consortium of higher education institutions that share resources and information related to participation for underrepresented students and comprehensive pre-departure and reentry orientation for study abroad. The Center’s SAFETI Project involves work with the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of State, the Peace Corps, higher education associations, and over 200 colleges and universities. Similarly, the proposed PLATO consortium will integrate efforts from various higher education institutions, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, national student affairs organizations, offices for ethnic and intercultural services, and ethnic studies academic departments at institutions across the nation. PLATO’s overarching goal is to make study abroad more inclusive, inviting, and accessible for underrepresented students than ever before across the United States. It also seeks to provide resources and an online curriculum to support comprehensive orientation, pre-study-abroad orientation, retention resources during study abroad, post-study-abroad reentry support, community service outreach opportunities for returning students, and recognition of this integrated international education with an international honors certificate. The success of this project will depend on resource sharing and feedback from faculty and staff at colleges and universities, as well as other higher education organizations throughout the United States.
